Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) is now available in Colorado!

Pandemic EBT, or P-EBT, provides families with children eligible for free or reduced-price school meals and attend a school participating in the National School Lunch Program with funds to help purchase food. Families can receive up to $279 per eligible child to supplement their food budget, regardless of immigration status.

Households that were receiving SNAP during the months of March, April, and May may not need to take any action; their P-EBT benefits may have automatically been loaded onto the EBT card they already have. 

Families with eligible children who did not receive SNAP during those months or who did not receive the automatic payment need to apply online to receive this benefit. Visit to learn more and apply for P-EBT today!

The application will remain open until late September.
